Big & Rich To Perform at Darfur Rally

Giving a good name to country music, my boys Big & Rich (iTunes) are so far the only popular music entertainment scheduled to perform at the Rally to Stop Genocide in Washington, D.C on April 30. Big Kenny has explained his group’s advocacy for the Darfur issue in a letter on the MuzikMafia website:
President Bush has recognized this tragedy as "genocide", but it will take much more than words to end the violence and murder. Enough is enough and we must show all of our elected leaders that we believe that as the WORLD's most POWERFUL government, we CAN make a difference.
It’s nice to see Big & Rich step up and perform in an environment much more friendly to U2, R.E.M., etc. than Nashville country stars. Darfur is primarily an apolitical moral and human rights issue, making it perfect for the country music world. Help Big & Rich raise the profile of Darfur in country music by attending the rally and by writing to other country stars to suggest that they get on the Darfur bandwagon.

And Kenny, good for you for taking action on your “Love Everybody” slogan! I respect it even more now.

    It's great that Big and Rich are going to perform at the Darfur Rally. Do you know if any country bands are going to perform at the Darfur rally in San Francisco?
